Assign V-CORES to Workspace

My apologies, my company just purchase Power BI Premium P1 V-Cores 8, Is it possible to assign Cores to each workspace?

 

We have the following workspace. 

  • PRD Workspace   Assign V-Cores(4)
  • TEST Workspace  Assign V-Cores(2)
  • DEV Workspace  Assign V-Cores(2)
  • QA Workspace   Assign V-Cores(2)

 

Is that possible?

Thank you in advance.

Sorta - but you may not be able to split out the V-cores as you have described.

First you'll go to the Power BI Admin menu and setup your Premium Capacity.  You add the V-cores to each capacity. 
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/admin/service-admin-premium-manage
From my experience - you can typically only select 8 v-cores as your minimum - based on the selections in the capacity size drop down menu.  I'm not sure if you go fewer than 8 for the P SKUs.  

Once your capacity is setup - then you add your workspaces to that capacity.  So you would be able to add all 4 workspaces to the same capacity.  

If after monitoring the capacity usage - you find that having all 4 workspaces in the same capacity is consuming too much available memory - you'll have to consider splitting them out or upgrading your SKU in order to add more V-cores.
